Yep it’s January 1 2013, and there have been plenty of tweets about new year resolutions, and blogs, and posts on Facebook. Victoria Carter co-founder of Cityhop says, “I have often thought you can make a resolution every time you think you have the commitment to make something happen. It’s all about your willingness to make it happen”
“I guess a New Year is a good time to start something but as we know from the statistics so many people say they want o do something and rarely do! What has this to do with car share? Well quite a bit! Probably lots of people made resolutions to get fit, save more money and the obvious way to do this is through carshare. But every step towards change truly occurs with a small step.
“Thinking about this I read one of my favourite author’s tweets, Gretchen Rubin on “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.”
“It makes so much sense, it is so often how we sabotage our good intentions. As Gretchen reminds far better to do a 20 minute walk than never do the 3 mile run. Have friends over for takeaways is better than having no people to a flash dinner party.
“It’s all about one’s outlook. Same applies to carshare; keep your car if you want but perhaps consider selling one in your family and get a carshare membership and give it a try.
See how easy carshare is, how convenient. First work out what your car really costs and then think about what you could do with that money (not just once but every year!)”
